Request a Team Site


Need a myPortal Team Site?

Congratulations to the more than 70 percent of DCCCD employees who have verified their Windows user name. If you have already received your confirmation from DSC-IT, you are now able to request a Team Site.

Team Sites are available for all officially sanctioned student organizations, councils, teams, work groups, task forces, departments and departmental work groups. If you are not sure if the group you have in mind qualifies, check with your supervisor. He/she is the person who has the authority to approve the group.

Here’s the information you’ll need to request a Team Site:

  • Name and Colleague ID (7-digit employee ID number) of the team leader
  • Names and Colleague IDs (7-digit employee ID number) of the team members
  • Name and contact information of the team sponsor

We strongly recommend that you take Team Site training as soon as possible after your Team Site is created. (The prerequisite for Team Site training is myPortal Intro.)

What’s the difference between a Team Site and an Information Site?

A Team Site is where most of the great collaboration tools in myPortal are housed. A Team Site is only accessible by members of the team. An Information Site can be viewed by everyone in a particular constituency (Students, Faculty, Employees).

A team does its work in private within a Team Site. When its work is completed and ready for publication, the team may publish the results on an Information Site, a public facing website or any other publication, if desired.

Where is the “Request a Team Site” form?

A link to the Request a Team Site form is located in the myPortal Help Site.

Need help?

If you have questions, see the myPortal FAQs, which are housed in the myPortal Help site, or feel free to ask one of the members of the Portal Adoption team.

Also, the Portal Adoption team is hosting a “genius bar” and several work sessions at the PSS and Faculty/Administrator Conference Day on Thursday. We’d love to see you there.

Thanks for your help!

myPortal is a powerful tool that will become even more powerful when more of us begin to use it for collaboration and communication.

As we noted during launch, on any project that is this large and far-reaching, things occasionally will go wrong. If you discover any issues, please let us know as soon as possible so we can get them fixed.
